This is warm weather gardening....from the end of May until September!

Our season is too short for many things so the greenhouse just gets us to the end of September.

The outer garden is done at the end of August, or sometimes before if the frost comes in at night.

My husband is the type who won't buy, if he can make, build, or repair something.

Patricia, your pictures sent me to Google in search of a small greenhouse. I discovered yours took a good deal of work and I guess I'm like Randall and will settle for warm weather gardening. :)  Thanks for sharing your pictures.

Patricia, your photos almost--and I do mean almost--inspire me to build a greenhouse. Alas, I'm too lazy. I'll just freeze my summertime veggies.

Nice neighbors! Gifted husband! Lucky you!

He's the gardener in the family. He built everything despite his bad heart, & the neighbors helped/help with anything heavy.

Patricia, this is a real treasure! Did your husband build it for you? What a man! Your layout is so easy to maintain, and you have everything at just the right height. This should be in Sunset Magazine!

Stand alone greenhouse

Doorway

Dirt floor

Ropes for ''climbing''

Opposing openable windows with a fan in one, & wires to the left for the melons to hang from

Patricia, I very much like your greenhouse. It looks like a wood frame house with plastic as siding. Does that allow you to garden all winter? It looks so sturdy. Is it an add-on to your house, or a stand alone building? What kind of floor do you have?

A friend of mine in Buffalo, Wyoming, built a garage, and instead of siding, covered it with heavy greenhouse plastic. They have very harsh winters and they are able to grow some things all year long. The tender plants don't survive, but there are a lot of vegetables and fruits that can grow with protection such as their.
